We visited Ponta Delgado by cruise ship. Mario, our tour guide, picked us up right at the cruise terminal, and every minute of the tour was wonderful. Mario was an excellent guide. We were a group of 6. The Van was very comfortable & he used a speaker system so that even sitting in the back you could clearly hear everything he had to say. We had opted for a half day tour out to Sete Cidades one of the most beautiful spots on the Island of Sao Miguel. The ride out and the stops Mario made for pictures really gave us a good overview of this beautiful island as well as his sharing interesting stories of what we were looking at. We got to stretch our legs & enjoy a coffee in a small cafe in Sete Cidades village. There is also a beautiful church in the village, Church of Saint Nicholas, that is worth visiting and is very photogenic. We had opted for this half day tour so that we could spend some time in the town of Ponta Delgado as well, before we had to get back to the ship. Mario provided us with a recommended restaurant to have lunch & his recommendation was wonderful. I highly recommend taking Mario's tour whenever you visit the Island. You can be sure we will - to see the rest of the Island on our next visit.
